Mid-elevation forests between 6,500 to 8,000 feet elevation are most sensitive to climate change, finds a new University of Colorado Boulder-led study co-funded by NASA.
Scientists are currently flying state-of-the-art, autonomously operated instruments to gather difficult-to-obtain measurements of wind speeds, precipitation, and cloud structures in and around tropical storms.
Two Landsat images appear on the upcoming "Earthscapes" stamps, which will be promoted at a free event Oct. 1 at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md.
NASA software that models the behavior of earthquake faults to improve earthquake forecasting and our understanding of earthquake processes, and NASA's first mobile application are co-winners of NASA's 2012 Software of the Year Award.
The summer of 2012 will unfortunately be known as the "Summer of Devastating Western Wildfires" and practically not one state out west was spared. Washington State has been hardest hit of late. This satellite image shows a rash of wildfires currently burning in the middle of the state.
The floating, frozen sea ice covering the Arctic Ocean melted to a record low extent on Sept. 16, 2012, continuing a long-term trend that has seen the summer size of the ice cap shrink dramatically in the past three decades.
The Surprise Valley Fault, a stretch of land that snakes along the Warner Mountain Range in northeastern California, is pocked with small surface scars and billows steam from hot springs, which makes it an ideal location to study underground seismic activity.
In 1977, Pawan Bhartia took a job at NASA that would lead to a role in the discovery and stabilization of the Antarctic ozone hole.
Over the next few weeks, an ER-2 high altitude research aircraft will take part in the development of two future satellite instruments.
A new European meteorological satellite soared into space Sept. 17 with five instruments developed at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md.
Summer drought was easy to see in the southern United States in 2011. The lingering, subtle drought of winter was also visible to an unusual pair of satellites.
